Who needs an AR-15? Especially an AR-15 with a 20 or 30 round clip?

These are the kinds of questions that have become popular fare by talking heads like CNN's Piers Morgan over the past few weeks. He criticizes "assault weapons" in general and AR-15s in particular--labeling them "killing machines"--and asks guest after guest on his television program, Who needs one?

One answer to Morgan's line of questioning is that anyone looking for a home defense weapon or a self-defense weapon may very well need an AR-15 (or an AK-47 or SKS rifle).


Ironically, a "Personal Defense Weapons Solicitation" for Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agents in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), lists an AR-15 variant as "suitable for personal defense."

So who needs an AR-15? According to the DHS document, it might simply be those who are looking for "personal defense."
